The Toxic Reality Of Antisemitism In Europe

editor 21 April 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. Antisemitism in Europe has become mainstream and normalized at a level “not seen since the Second World War.” So says the president of the European Jewish Congress, Dr. Moshe Kantor, who states: “There has been an increase in open, unashamed and explicit hatred directed against Jews.” It’s as if a veil lowered after the Holocaust has now been lifted to reveal that little has changed. Poland is seeking to deny its own history of antisemitism, with a new law criminalizing anyone who accuses Poland of having been complicit in the Nazi destruction of European Jewry. [Photo top right: 1819 Hep-Hep riots in Frankfurt. An engraving by Johann Michael Voltz. Two peasant women are assaulting a Jew with pitchfork and broom.

#EnoughisEnough

editor 20 April 2018

By J-Wire Newsdesk.. Malcolm Green says that this is the film he wishes he never made. Anti-semitism in the UK.

Or rather, the film I wish I’d never had to make. However, in the UK today, in some ‘pockets’ of our political system (rather large pockets it has to be said), antisemitism is making itself felt with a vengeance.

And whilst there is a lot of handwringing and tut-tutting going on, there is very little action to send this hatred back to the fringes and beyond. (more…)

The Sewer Of Left-Wing Anti-Semitism

editor 29 March 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. There was only one thing worse than the remarkable revelation of institutionalised antisemitism on the left revealed by David Collier on his website last week. It was the reaction.

Collier is an indefatigable blogger who spends much of his life immersed in the cesspools of anti-Jewish and Israel-bashing bigotry in British institutions. His aim is to bring the epidemic of open antisemitism to the attention of the wider public. He is positively heroic in subjecting himself to the traumatic effects of wading through all this filth. But last week he took his investigations onto a different level altogether. (more…)

editor 17 March 2018

By Robert Philpot.. Report on inner-workings of anti-Semitic group reveals that Greta Berlin belatedly acknowledged ‘crazy’ Ken O’Keefe seized IDF commando’s gun, sparking fight in which 10 Turks died. LONDON — A leading pro-Palestinian campaigner involved in the flotilla that attempted to enter Gaza in May 2010 has appeared to corroborate Israel’s version of the events which led to the bloody confrontation on board the Mavi Marmara.

For Prince William’s Israel Visit to Mean Anything, There’s One Thing He Must Do

editor 8 March 2018

By Liel Leibovitz.. The royal family has always snubbed Israel. If its younger generation wants to change that, one order of business is due. When news broke of Prince William’s upcoming official visit to Israel, I was tempted to treat the news as I do all other dispatches concerning the royal family: By rolling my eyes, sighing softly, and wondering why these waxen wallydrags still managed to interest anyone but their unfortunate subjects. But the facts, as they so often do, began to chafe, and a rethinking of my position was in order. [Photo top right: Prince William, Duke of Camebridge | Credit Wikiedia Commons].  (more…)

editor 15 February 2018

By Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI).. Secretary of State for Defence, Rt. Hon. Gavin Williamson MP, underlined that “Britain will always be Israel’s friend” at Conservative Friends of Israel’s Annual Parliamentary Reception on Tuesday (January 30, 2018). Addressing an audience of over 250 CFI supporters, including 50 parliamentarians, the Defence Secretary praised Israel as a “beacon of light and hope, in a region where there is so much hatred and hurt”. He emphasised: “We shouldn’t underestimate how difficult it is to keep that light bright and burning”. [Photo top right: Secretary of State for Defence, Rt. Hon. Gavin Williamson MP | CFI].  (more…)

MPs’ brilliant answers to hypocritical singling out of Israel’s arrests of minors

editor 13 February 2018

By Christians United for Israel (CUFI).. John Howell MP was among a number of MPs that provided brilliant responses in defence of Israel during a debate in Westminster Hall today (Wednesday 7, 2018). The debate titled ‘Military detention of Palestinian children by Israeli authorities’ included incredibly hostile speeches in a room full of mostly anti-Israel MPs. However the MP for Henley challenged the hypocrisy by revealing the figures of juvenile arrests made by Britain during the 2011 riots. Other MPs also shared the truth about the threats Israel face and unjust singling out of Israel. FANTASTIC! (more…)

Trump derangement syndrome strikes as leftists target Britain’s former chief rabbi

editor 7 February 2018

By Caroline Glick.. Trump Derangement Syndrome reached a new low last week, as Jewish leftists in America and Britain waged a brutal assault against Lord Jonathan Sacks, the former chief rabbi of Britain. It isn’t only President Donald Trump that the “Resistance” seeks to destroy. And their bloodlust isn’t limited to those who work for him, or even to his voters. If you so much as help the administration achieve a goal that you believe in, for the “Resistance,” you are a criminal. Sacks served as Britain’s chief rabbi from 1991 through 2013. He is arguably the most widely respected Jewish religious leader in the English-speaking world. (more…)

Time To Shame Those Who Spread Prejudice

editor 26 January 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. University antisemitism is a serious and growing problem. Jewish students increasingly say they fear being on campus because of anti-Jewish vilification or harassment. Last year (2017), an NUS study found more than a quarter of them had been subjected to personal abuse on social media or other channels. The universities minister, Jo Johnson, made an important speech last week at Limmud, the acclaimed Jewish learnathon. While the universities had to defend free speech better than they were doing, he said, there could be no place on campus for antisemitism.

Palestinianism Is Over. Someone Please Tell The British

editor 25 January 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. Apparently insulted by repeated slights from Britain’s political class and populace, President Donald Trump has decided to cancel his proposed visit there. Desperate to rescue the all-important post-Brexit US trade deal that might now be in jeopardy, Prime Minister Theresa May is seeking to “clear the air” with the president at the World Economic Forum in Davos next week (23-26 January 2018 Davos-Klosters, Switzerland). Good luck with that one. [Photo top right: Pottery found in the City of David excavations | Photo credit Ferrel’s Travel Blog].  (more…)
